Community Project Funding Requests

This year, the House Appropriations Committee is accepting Community Project Funding Requests for the Fiscal Year 2022 spending bill, which allow members of Congress to advocate for direct funding to their communities. Each member of Congress will be able to submit up to ten Community Project Funding requests to benefit state or local government grantees or eligible nonprofits. From there, the Appropriations Committee will consider Member requests when writing the annual spending bill. Though each member can submit up to ten requests, only a handful may actually be funded.  Importantly, there will be new reforms to ensure public transparency and accountability. Members of Congress must certify that they and their immediate family have no financial interests in the projects they request, and they must post each request to their website. There is a ban on directing Community Project Funding to for-profit entities. Lastly, the Appropriations Committee will limit Community Project Funding to no more than 1 percent of discretionary spending.
